J’AI LU : l’étranger, de Camus (1942) 8/10 h e l l o 🌞 Cette semaine j’ai lu l’étranger, de Camus, ce livre que tout le monde adore et que j’aurais dû lire au lycée ; j’ai encore une fois été conquise par la plume de Camus, que je trouve si juste et poignante. Je trouve que cet écrivain arrive à nous toucher en utilisant un style très simple et sans éloquences, ce que j’avais déjà remarqué dans « la peste » et « les justes ». Le récit commence avec ce très connu incipit ; « Aujourd’hui, maman est morte. Ou peut-être hier, je ne sais pas ». Dans ce récit, on suit Meursault, un homme, mais on n’en sait pas beaucoup plus sur lui. Il reste très hermétique tout au long du récit, alors qu’on le voit traverser le décès de sa mère, un début de relation amoureuse, un meurtre, un procès et enfin l’exécution. S’il n’est pas totalement hermétique, il ne ressent rien ; la plupart des choses qu’il vit l’indiffère. Ce récit est très psychologique et très philosophique - Camus, à juste titre, nous fait nous remettre sérieusement en question ; est-ce qu’on agit précisément de la façon dont la société veut que nous agissions ? Sommes-nous excessifs ? L’homme moderne est-il absurde ? On s’aperçoit très clairement qu’il y a un dictat des codes de société, et on se rend compte qu’ils sont ridicules. À ce propos, Camus a dit : « dans notre société, tout homme qui ne pleure pas à l’enterrement de sa mère risque d’être condamné à mort. » et c’est un résumé efficace de cette histoire. Meursault n’a pas pleuré parce qu’il n’en éprouvait pas le besoin. Plutôt que d’être jugé pour le meurtre qu’il a commis, il est condamné à mourir parce qu’il fait peur à la société dans laquelle il vit ; il ne joue pas le jeu de la société, il n’a que faire des conformités, ne participe pas au théâtre collectif, parce qu’il n’en voit pas l’intérêt. Il refuse le mensonge, répandu et commun dans la société qu’il expérimente, il ne place pas de faux mots sur la réalité telle qu’il la ressent. Ainsi, Meursault doit mourir, car tel que l’indique le titre de cette œuvre, il est resté Étranger à sa société. Refusant de se soumettre à cette dernière, refusant son emprise, (suite en commentaires)

Summer book haul part 1: I’ve read this a few times but didn’t own a physical copy; bought a couple as gifts, and looking forward to my mum reading it in particular. I discovered Robyn Davidson about a year after I moved to Qatar and started making in-roads into the camel culture here. Reading it, I was struck by how much her story would likely have inspired me to do what I am doing with the camels, had I already not been doing it! Retroactive inspiration, is it a thing? I feel like it could be. This book is an amazing, emotional, and beautifully-written account of Robyn’s solo journey across Australia with her camels in 1977. I found myself identifying with her in specific places: the first of which being her trouble expressing why exactly she wanted to undertake a trek with camels in the first place. Her musings on whether her ambitions were evidence of a individualistic or bourgeoisie nature reflect a painful consciousness of white privilege as early as the 1970s, set against the backdrop of the Aboriginal societies that she encounters along her route. In my own reading, and experience, it has repeatedly occurred to me how sadly ironic that emerging camel cultures in the Anglo-European west are evidence of an affluent desire to escape mainstream society, get off-grid, etc., a privilege unafforded to those traditional cultures who rely so heavily on camels as their livelihood, and for whom an equivalent “escape” seems to be represented by the younger generations of pastoralist communities abandoning their heritage and moving to the cities — in short, desiring to improve their circumstances by entering into the capitalist societies that many affluent whites are seeking to reject. This paradox is something I’d like to understand further, but I think much of Robyn’s book sets the tone for this, from the white context at least, given that her trek not only covers rural and desert concerns in 1970s Australia (many of which seem to be as pertinent today), but also the countercultural philosophies of that decade that again, persist troublesomely in contemporary society. I would highly recommend this book to anyone, whether interested in camels or no.

3/5 🌟 Another pyschological thriller which was fine but nothing special. I have definitely become very fussy with these kinds books but I dont think that is a bad thing. I am starting to realise what I like and dislike. I liked the pace of this book, I liked the chapters switching to characters perspectives. I didnt like yet another book focusing on a woman feeling like people in her life are trying to make out she is crazy yet being really poor at ensuring this doesnt happen. I found this book so similar to so many others I have read before that I couldn't rate it any higher unfortunately. "Secrets, lies, betrayal…and murder. Dr Kate English has it all. Not only is she heiress to a large fortune, she has a gorgeous husband and daughter, a high-flying career and a beautiful mansion anyone would be jealous of. But all that is about to change. One night, Kate’s mother is found dead, murdered in her own home. And then Kate receives a message: You think you’re sad now, just wait… Evidently, all is not as it seems in Baltimore high society, and as scandals, infidelities and betrayals are exposed, tensions rise to boiling point. The murderer could be anyone – friend, neighbour, lover, relative. And Kate is next on their list…" #bookstagram #book #books #bookstagrammer #justread #bibliophile #reading #reader #booksbooksbooks #bookreviews #reviews #literaryreviews #literary #bookreview #booksaremylife #booksaremybag #booksofig #bookworm #bookish #bookshelf #instareads #currentreads #ilovebooks #amreading #toberead #bookgram #allthebooks #alwaysreading

“You set the colours against each other and they sing. Not as a choir but as soloists.” . 🌈 . Looking back through deteriorating eyes, the activist, artist, film-maker, gardener, and writer Derek Jarman brings colour brilliantly to life. We see the full spectrum brimming with meaning: from queer history to the Bible, his own poetry to advert slogans, the physics of light rays to the historical process of creating dyes, and the impact of colours in his own artistic and personal life. With chapters dedicated to pioneers like Leonardo and Isaac Newton, as well as through the rainbow — White Lies, On Seeing Red, etc — his thoughts are a loose but lucid stream of consciousness (and he never misses an opportunity for a colour pun). The writing is lyrical, witty, whimsical: in Green Fingers, for example, you find that one second you are being asked ‘Were Adam’s eyes the green of paradise?’, and the next being told that ‘Havelock Ellis was certain that queers preferred green to any other colour... hand a colour swatch to a lad with clock on his mind and see what colour he chooses.’ (So good!) Indeed it seems almost that the more the writer’s sight began to fail, the more vividly he conjured colours on the page. . This is Jarman’s last book, but the first I read. (I’m big into books about colours and like, colours as a thing, so...) Definitely planning to read Modern Nature, and his other journals and books, now though. Hint if you’re looking to read him too: several are being reissued from Vintage in the same series as this one & they look just as fit. They also have incred introductions from modern writers, like this one from Ali Smith which was so good it actually made me want to give her writing another go (difficult — I could NOT get on with Autumn when I tried last year.) . Holla Jarman fans? 👋 Which should I read next? . 🌈 . #chroma #derekjarman #modernnature #alismith #readingspot #nonfictionbooks #bookquotes #amreading #currentlyreading #reading #thesecretlivesofcolour #bookstagram #bookreviews #lgbtbooks #vintagebooks #vintageinthewild @vintagebooks

If you missed this last night... Today’s book of the day will be Crackhouse in the Desert, which is the book unlucky enough to be released between Ket Pandas and 56 Seconds. And we’re onto Ketamine Addicted Pandas, released in June of last year. This was the one I kept running on my computer sometimes adding no words, sometimes 400 and sometimes 4000 each day. It took about seven months to write. During that seven months, there was a lot of the emotionally manipulative trauma bonding social vampires, general creepiness and of course the condescending fuckwits who know what’s best for my life 😕 (notice the sarcasm). There were also the people with the very extreme and totally black and white points of view. I like to think Ketamine Addicted Pandas topped anything those edgelords and edgelordettes claimed they were going to do. I was a bit burnt out after finishing this, God’s Fleshlight and lots of short stories. I sent it to my publisher in July of 2017. The next thing I wrote was Sparky the Spunky Robot in October of that year. It took a lot of false starts before I had the Sparky you can buy now. Join King Jay and company as they burn, fuck and eat their way through Northern Europe. PS. Don’t give them bamboo. They prefer baboon brains. 🇺🇸 kindle https://www.amazon.com/Ketamine-Addicted-Pandas-Dawn-ebook/dp/B07DHWZV8F/ 🇺🇸 paperback https://www.amazon.com/Ketamine-Addicted-Pandas-Dawn/dp/1720662614/ 🇬🇧 kindle https://www.amazon.co.uk/Ketamine-Addicted-Pandas-Dawn-ebook/dp/B07DHWZV8F/ 🇬🇧 paperback https://www.amazon.co.uk/Ketamine-Addicted-Pandas-Dawn/dp/1720662614/ #author #authorsofinstagram #writer #writing #writersofinstagram #horror #extremehorror #bizarro #fiction #horrorbooks #horrorstories #amreading #amreadinghorror #books #bookstagram #horrorcommunity

Swipe to read - "Brothers and Fathers" excerpt from Astrid the Devil. Story by Trey Briggs | Art by @freemechanism. Chapter Seven is available on the site (astridthedevil.com) and Wattpad. Let me tell you. I wrote this awhile ago, hated it, and decided to rewrite it at the very last second. And now I adore it, and I hope you will, too. So. All of our friends are going through it this chapter. Alicia and Yenna finally face their fate in her pre-chapter intro. Juke is on a downward spiral as he is prepped for a bigger approaching horror (our short excerpt details some of this). Astor is FED UP and decides to literally put her foot down about the safety of her children. And hands are shown when Osh and Noah are forced to face what they have in the basement... I am so tired. 😭😭😭 I really hope this came out the way I attempted. This chapter was fun + chaotic to write. 😳 Let the horror continue. I hope you enjoy. I'm using my bait tags again so hi if you're new! I'm a black indie paranormal horror writer and you can see more at www.astridthedevil.com or maybetrey.com. . . . #blackwriters #illustration #aliciafree #hairgoals #melaninkings #amreading #animeart #blackgirlsslay #supernatural #afroart #drawingwhileblack #noahdill #horrorstories #afrocentric #manga #freemechanism #treybriggsthewriter #Astridthedevil #JukeTeroy #ChaunceDill #africanamericanliterature #originalcharacters #blerds #blackcharacters #teamnatural #blackwomenwriters #paranormalhorror #dopeblackart #blackandgifted

‘Woke up this morning with a terrific urge to lie in bed all day and read.’ - Raymond Carver Taking this advice to start the long weekend and dipping into a few short stories. Raymond Carver, American poet and short story writer, was born on 25 May 1938. Cathedral, his third collection of stories, was nominated for the Pulitzer Prize for fiction in 1984. Carver believed it was possible to ‘to write about commonplace things and objects using commonplace but precise language and endow these things ...with immense, even startling power'. For me, his short stories do exactly that. Definitely worth picking up if you are not already familiar with his work.

Am Wochenende passiert in der #Reha nicht viel. Heute war es genau ein Termin, bei dem wir in einer Gruppe mit fast dreißig Patienten in den Kurpark und dort eine kleine Runde gelaufen sind. Und das schon direkt nach dem Frühstück. Dafür ist dann jetzt bis Montag früh nichts mehr mit Therapien und ich kann mich etwas ausruhen und hoffen, dass mein Hämatom/ Serom sich etwas bessert. Ansonsten ist viel Zeit zu lesen und die Sonne zu genießen, die ja in der kommenden Woche angeblich schon wieder eine Pause machen soll. #bookcount 13/2019 #butfirstcoffee #barista #espresso #lattemacchiato #coffee #kaffee #coffeeaddict #kaffeesucht #bookstagram #book #booklover #buch #reading #literature #literatur #amreading #rheuma #rheumatoidarthritis #lebenmitrheuma #rawarrior #rheumabotschafter #reha #rehab #currentread #ebook #samfeuerbach #diekrosannsaga #dieauftragsmörderin

Excerpt from my book - FREE w/ #KindleUnlimited I have found that many of the people who fall into either category have the firm belief that the only way to read and understand the words in a book is to read or mouth out each word – that subvocalizing each word allows them better understanding of the text. What you need to understand is that you have the greatest computer in the world – your brain – working through the text. You know most of the words that you are reading – they are in your vocabulary – and that means that when you see the word on the page – its meaning is clear to you. You have a mental image that appears and gives you total understanding. Your brain does not ‘need’ to subvocalize each word. You have created that ‘need’ and today this habit is firmly set in place. ...more on this in my book - available on Kindle: Speed Reading Simplified for Beginners: How You Can Double Your Reading Speed With an 8 Minute Exercise! http://bit.ly/SRSBeginnersBook Now available on #Amazon - ONLY $2.99 for a very limited time! >> #Kindle #ebook #eReading #Reading #Readers #Reading #AvidReader #SpeedReading

Entre lecturas contemporáneas, novedades editoriales y algunos clásicos de menor calado, intento leer algún clásico universal. Libros a los que cualquier lector que se precie debe acudir en algún momento. Sostengo que a estas lecturas se llega por propio interés y no por ninguna clase de imposición social. Por ejemplo, yo aun no he leído El Quijote, pero lo leeré en cuanto encuentre una edición que me convenza. Hoy os traigo una de esas novelas clásicas por antonomasia. Suele estar en el TOP 10 de novelas clásicas. Rojo y negro de Stendhal (en el francés original Le Rouge et le Noir: chronique de 1830) es una novela publicada a mediados de noviembre de 1830. Sobre el título hay controversia e interpretaciones, que en el prólogo de la traductora se presentan para que el lector (tras la lectura) decida por sí mismo. La obra se juzga como una de las mejores de la narrativa francesa, ejemplo de novela psicológica; influyó a muchos escritores del realismo, en particular a Tolstoi, Balzac o Zola quien proclamó a Stendhal como "el padre de todos nosotros". Así que, como siempre que reseño algún clásico, no voy a contaros nada nuevo; me voy a centrar en aquellos aspectos que a mi me han resultado especialmente interesantes. Rojo y negro está protagonizada por Julien Sorel, hijo de un carpintero del pueblo ficticio de Verrières. Stendhal narra los esfuerzos de Julien por ascender de condición social pese a su juventud, diciendo a los demás lo que quieren oír y haciendo lo que desean verle hacer: "Solo un necio -se dijo-...[sigue en el blog, link en la bio] ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ 📕Rojo y negro 📗 Stendhal 📘 @albaeditorial #libros #bookworm #bibliophile #amreading #booknerdigans #booknerd #book #bookstagram #bookphotography #bookshelf #literature #literatura #leer #bookblogger #igreads #booklove #rojoynegro #stendhal #booksofinstagram #bookporn #bookstagram #books #clasico #france #lerougeetlenoir

🇩🇪🇬🇧 Omg, der Augenjäger! Es ist ein super Buch, aber irgendwie, hat sich die Spannung bei mir beim Lesen nicht so eingestellt, wie es sonst der Fall ist. Warum? Weil ich mir sicher war, dass ich weiß wie es ausgeht. Ich dachte ich hätte den Autor durchschaut, aber dann kam die Wendung und ich konnte es nicht mehr aus der Hand legen! Der Grund warum ich Fitzeks Büchr so liebe: nichts ist wie es scheint! Danke @sebastianfitzek . Omg the eye collector! I read it wasn't translated to english (yet?) - I just hope it will be for all the thriller loving english speaking people. It is a really good book, but while I was reading it I wasn't as excited, because I thought I knew the ending. I thought I knew where the author wanted to go, but then came the twist and I couldn't put the book down. And that's the reason why I live Fitzeks books so much: nothing is ever as it seems.

#QOTD ~ What's your take on marriage? Jane Austen seemed to have been obsessed with the theme of marriage & love in almost all her novels. The presentation may differ from one novel to another, but her message remains true in all ~ True love (which leads to a happy marriage) can be achieved only if there is mutual admiration, equality of social and educational background, compatibility of temperament... If you are new to the world of Austen, do start your journey with this book. It brings out some of her best writings (on the theme of love & marriage) from her greatest novels... It is a treat. 😊 Published by ~ @vintagebooks #bookstagram #bookstagrammer #bookstagramindia #booklover #indianreaders #igread #bookworm #bookishlife #bookstagramfeature #bookgram #janeausten #marriage #familylife #love #romancenovel #fiction #bookstagramflatlay #bookblogger #amreading #unitedbookstagram #bibliogram #bookcollector #bookcommunity

This is the year I want to read more classics. I'll be honest I haven't read that many this year yet, but I have a couple of months left. Yesterday I started with The Catcher in the Rye. I know a lot of people say this is one of their favorite books, so the stakes are high. I am super late to be reading all these classics, but better late than never, right?

Unbezahlte Werbung aus Liebe/Verlinkung - Nach und nach kommen die Verlagsvorschauen für die kommende Herbstsaison. Momentan verbringe ich also viel, viel Zeit damit, neue Titel zu sichten. Eine Vorschau, deren Erscheinen ich jedes Mal kaum erwarten kann, ist die vom @eisele_verlag. Und wie immer wurde ich nicht enttäuscht - allein das Cover! Liebe auf den ersten Blick! Verrückterweise besuchte mich ein paar Tage später @dieuebersetzerin , Frauke, in der Buchhandlung- und was soll ich Euch sagen: Sie hat den Toptitel des Herbstes (dessen Cover auch auf der Vorschau ist) übersetzt: #ichbincirce von @madeline.e.miller ( #circe ). Wir hatten (wie immer) ein großartiges (Kaffeeklatsch-)Gespräch - darüber, wie es ist, einen solchen (anspruchsvollen) Text zu übersetzen, über die griechische Mythologie, über #feminism , #metoo und #empowerment - ich war heiß auf das Buch - und: Achtung, Spoiler! : ich lese es gerade - und bin HIN und WEG, ich kann es nicht aus der Hand legen und tauche komplett ein - ein, in diese neue, weibliche Sicht der berühmten Geschichte Homers. Mehr dann am 30. August, wenn das Buch in den Läden ist. Worauf freut ihr Euch diesen Herbst? Und nochmal einmal kurzes „fangirling“: Ich zolle Julia Eisele meinen größten Respekt: Für das Wagnis, etwas so besonderes in der heutigen Zeit auf die Beine zu stellen, einen kleinen und so feinen Verlag zu gründen - für ihren Mut und ihre Kreativität, für „auf Klasse statt Masse zu setzen“ -und zu sehen, dass die Menschen es annehmen, wertschätzen und es lieben. Danke Julia! Ich ziehe meinen Hut vor Dir!

Guten Morgen zusammen. 😴 Am Dienstag konnte ich endlich meine Kerzen von Cozycornercandles auspacken und sie sind sooo unglaublich schön!😭 Ich liebe ja Matthias und Nikolai aus dem Grishaverse und zusammen mit meiner Darkling Kerze sehen sie jetzt super cool im Regal aus.😊 Da das Wetter heute eher schlecht ist, werde ich Erdbeerkuchen backen und ganz viel lesen, denn es sind zwei neue Bücher bei mir eingezogen und Aurora Rising will auch beendet werden.🥰 #cozycornercandles #grishaverse #nikolailantsov #matthiashelvar #kingofscars

Yesterday I plowed through the last 250 pages of this book. I needed a few hours to let it settle because. Wow. I love Jodi Picoults writing so much. ° ° ° The Storyteller is about an elderly man in his 90s who admits to being an ex SS nazi soldier, and who asks a person from Jewish family to help him die. Its written from the perspective of four characters, one of whom is a holocaust survivor telling her story of the horrors she endured during the war. This book shows the gruesome and horrifying things that happened to Jewish people during the holocaust. There were parts of this that made me pause reading and take a breath because thinking about the fact things like this were a reality for millions and millions of real living people was hard hitting. I was made to question morality and humanity, whether forgiveness is possible and people can change. Its so powerful and written in such a way that you're right there with each character along the way. This has quickly become one of my favourite reads of the year so far. ° ° ° #book #books #booklist #bookphoto #bookphotography #bookoholic #booklover #bookstagram #bookaddict #bookobsessed #bookish #bookworm #read #reading #amreading #reader #readersofig #readabook #readingtime #haveread #bookreview #thestoryteller #jodipicoult

Hello tout le monde ! 💛❄️⭐️ . Aujourd’hui on va parler de La muse des cauchemars écrit par Laini Taylor. Comme vous le savez peut être, Le faiseur de rêves avait été un énorme coup de cœur, et j’avais beaucoup d’appréhension en commençant ce tome 2 💛 . Et ? Mais que dire à part Waouh ?! Ce tome 2 est encore plus dingue que tout ce que je pouvais imaginer 😭 La plume de l’autrice, est toujours aussi poétique et s’accorde à la perfection avec son univers et ses personnages ! J’ai ressenti des centaines d’émotions différentes 😭 ! Retrouver tout les personnages du tome 1 était un vrai soulagement ! 💛 Et surtout, Surtout, L’univers qui était déjà magnifiquement riche et beau, et incroyable prend une nouvelle tournure grâce à tout ce que l’on apprend ! Je ne m’attendais tellement pas à cela 😂😭 Et tout est vraiment bien géré par Laini Taylor encore une fois ! Aussi bien les nouveaux personnages que la tension addictive ! . Je crois que vous l’auriez compris : JE SUIS FAN de cette duologie 😂 . Je suis fan de son univers Je suis fan de la plume de l’autrice qui a mené son intrigue du début à la fin Je suis fan des couvertures ! Je suis fan de ses personnages tous différents et uniques mais qu’on comprend et accepte Je suis fan.... car tout simplement c’est l’une des plus belles sagas que j’ai pu lire et je n’ai rien à lui reprocher ! . Alors n’hésitez pas et foncez découvrir tout cela ! 💛 . COUP DE CŒUR 💛💛😭 . Il vous tente ? Vous êtes comme moi amoureux(se) de cette saga ? Dites moi tout !😉 . A bientôt 💛 Et bonnes lectures 📖 .

Had a brilliant couple of days at a primary school in Manchester! I took their Year 6s and some of their talented Year 5 writers on an imaginative & powerful creative writing journey. I was so impressed with the stories they produced in just a short time, some of which I think may give me nightmares 😆🙈 terrifying beasts, blood raining from the sky, booby traps, never-ending labyrinths, swamps made from volcanic lava, forests of ice. But best of all, brave protagonists who were willing to step up to anything that stands in their way. Absolutely loved working with such awesome young people. Here is me taking a quick selfie just before the final assembly while a whole row of Year 6s giggled at me 🤣 If you fancy offering your students a fiction writing workshop or would like me to come in and talk to your students about why reading books gives you super powers, get in touch 📝 #author #authorsofinstagram #teachersofinstagram #primaryteaching #secondaryteaching #teach #write #writingworkshop #writerscommunity #writingprompts #writing #writersofinstagram #kids #teachingideas #creativekids #books #amreading #amwriting #pta

Basque peppers Read more in HOMESTRETCH by patxi pagasarri, coming soon. A family saga of three Basque generations through the Spanish civil conflict, Hitler's French occupation and the postwar years. At times crude yet poetic and generous, it’s a tangle of fiction and reordered fact, an account of binding loyalties, unforgiving history and humbling humanity, showcasing brave spirited matriarchs enslaved by system and circumstances who, despite it all, manage to instil a sense of cherished identity in their children and the children of their children. #amreading #booklovers #bookaddict #ebooks #books #bookshelf #bookphotography #kindlebargains #bookchat #litfic #womensfiction #indiesareworthit #goodreads #ireadeverywhere #bookworld #bookstragram #epicreads #bookclub #booknerd #bookporn #bookaddict #greatreads #kindle #whattoread #fiction #romanticsuspense #summerreads #basquecountry #newbooks #2019books

I’m not a fan of crime fiction written by Indian authors but this one by Kulpreet Yadav didn’t seem to be one of those. The book was great in the beginning but I wasn’t very happy with the plot later on so giving it 3/5. . . #Bookstagram #IRead #UnitedBookstagram #Books #BookishPicture #AmReading #ReadersOfInstagram #booksofinstagram #bookphoto #booknerdigans #epicreads #booknerd #bookphotography #bookstack #booktower #bookaddict #bookpile #bibliophile #becauseofreading #instabooks #instabook #totalbooknerd #bookworm #Bookstagram #GujjuBookstagrammers
